Soriano Back To Leadoff Spot?

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IMay 7, 2010

Why not move Soriano to the leadoff spot?

For the past week the guy’s been pacing the Cubs’ lineup from the six-hole…batting 10-for-23 with 5 HR, 3 doubles and 11 RBI.

Maybe it’s the shakeup the lineup needs…maybe it keeps Soriano hot…and maybe it keeps the Cubs in contention a wee-bit longer?

Seriously, what could it hurt? The Cubs scored five lousy runs in three games against one of the worst staffs in baseball…and against three no-name starters, nonetheless.

Getting swept by Pittsburgh rules out any notion of a bad suggestion…and moving Soriano to the leadoff spot wouldn’t exactly be unheard of.

Sure, it’s not popular move, but what’s Lou to do? The Cubs need some offense away from home…Cincy is a great hitter’s park…and a temporary fix of Sori batting leadoff could salvage the road trip, perhaps even, the season.
